Villa Ilias: Fantastic view & convenient location

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 24, 2004

Villa Ilias is located in Firostefani, a village just north of Fira. In fact, there's really no distinct demarkation between the two and you can't really tell where one ends and the next begins. However, there is definitely a difference between the two. While Fira can be very overcrowded and congested, Firostefani is more peaceful and relaxing, while still having its own shops and restaurants and being within walking distance of Fira (which is VERY important because that's where the bus station is).

Villa Ilias is a small hotel clinging to the rim of the volcano. We got a small room with a magificent view of the caldera. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. They also have a small pool, but the water was so cold in early June that we couldn't bear to be in it for more than a few seconds. I'm sure this would not be the case in the hotter months of July and August though. The hotel is a very short walk from a little convenience store, which is, well, convenient. There are also several good restaurants nearby.

Unique Quality: Amazing view, convenient location, friendly and helpful staff, pool for hotter weather. All-around great place.

Directions: Just take a cab from the airport or ferry port. That's by far the easiest way to get there.
